Anyone own one? Was thinking of picking one up cause ammo is cheap as hell.

Would like to know how they shoot.

Some of the Romanian Tok's recently had a safety recall because of the safety itself.

Cheap, reasonably accurate, noisy (loud), if you find you like them but the grips don't work for you, find a set of grips for the Tokagypt (FEG made 'em for Egypt) version, they're actually decent grips.

LOL funny you say FEG. I own one of their browning HP clones. Good gun and it was cheap.

So what is the bullet size? .311, .310?

If you can't find a TT-33 look for a CZ-52,,,it shoots the same cartridge as the TT-33 (7.62x25),,,most can be had for less than $200. also,,,,SEMPER FI

Hello, all.
The TT-33s are great guns. I have a Russian, a Pole and a Romanian. All of them are good shooting, accurate guns.

The CZ-52 shoots the same ammo and is also fun. It is quite different than the TT-33, and most other handguns as well.

As mentioned above, there is plenty of cheap, surplus ammo available. The Romanian ammo works best in my handguns, but keep in mind it is corrosive, so you need to clean and oil the gun soon after firing. Commercial ammo is out there as well, but I haven't tried any.

Good luck if you decide to pick one up!

7.62 x 25 in the CZ or TT either one will take the .308 Hornady 86 gr. RNSP or .309 Hornady 90 gr. XTP HP work fine Sierra also make a .308 85 gr. bullet. You can also cast your own lead bullets if your so inclined.

Not worried about corrosive ammo. I clean any gun I fire right after use. Even if it's in the range parking lot.

I looked at the TT-33 a while back. And found the gun to fit my hand well. Haven't fired one yet. It's really a toss up between a TT-33 or a nagant revolver. Sadly tho. Ammunition for the nagant revolver is pricy. So TT-33 looks like the better choice. Mostly because ammunition is cheap and everywhere.

Yes, the Nagant ammo is hard to come by. I've been reloading for mine for a while now and that really helps.

I don't think you'll go wrong with the TT-33, especially since you've found it a good fit.

I read on another site that some of the Romanian ones suck(which wouldnt surprise me because some of the Romanian AKs had problems too), but I've heard nothing bad about the Russian or Polish versions(Which again, wouldn't surprise me, because I've heard nothing bad about Russian and Polish AKs)

I can't say speak either way about the quality of more recent imports. I've had my Romanian for two years.

All three of mine, including the Romanian, were made in the 1950s and the quality is very good.

i read that on the PAFOA(Pennsylvania firearms owners association) website. More specifically, here. Like I said, that's what I've heard/read, and multiple people on there seemed to have similar experiences. I don't have any personal experience, but they all did so I figured it was credible enough. Of course, YMMV.
